As of 2015, these scholarships now support Colorado and Geauga County, Ohio high school students who have earned a high school GPA of 2.5, are in need of financial assistance for college, university, or technical school, and who capture Kit's essence by demonstrating a positive attitude, strong commitment, and a drive towards accomplishment.
Three scholarships will be awarded to support graduating Colorado high school students, and one of those scholarships will be specifically designated for a graduating senior from a Montrose County, Colorado high school due to the generosity of that community during our fundraisers there over the past several years.
Additionally, a 4th scholarship will be offered to a graduating high school senior from a Geauga County, Ohio high school.
Available for the 2017-2018 school year, the scholarships may be used for any accredited two or four year college, university, or technical school. Scholarship money may be used for tuition, books, lab fees, or other costs directly related to the degree program. The scholarship recipients will receive an award of $5,000 for two years, for a total of $10,000.
The scholarship payments will be made directly to the school on the students' behalves at the start of each semester/quarter for the first two years. In order to maintain the scholarship, the recipients must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA throughout the first two years of the educational program. Recipients must submit grades along with a personal written assessment of accomplishments to the Kit Faragher Foundation at the end of each semester/quarter for their first two years.
